Amid the coronavirus pandemic, schools around the world have closed their doors and delayed or canceled their graduation ceremonies in lieu of virtual ones.

Missing out on this milestone is difficult for all students and their families — but it can be especially difficult for valedictorians who spent countless hours writing and practicing  their speeches.


These traditions have taken on a whole new meaning for the class of 2020 and in order to recognize valedictorians, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reached out to students and administrators across metro Atlanta and invited them to submit a video of their speech to publish on AJC.com.

The videos are broken out by county and can be viewed at ajc.com/ajc-cup.
